This research paper describes two main approaches that are currently available for modelling and simulating the evolution of dynamic living systems, namely the continuous-deterministic one, which is rendered by systems of ordinary differential equations and the discrete-stochastic one, which bases on the Stochastic simulation algorithm proposed by Gil/espíe in 1976. The aim of this comparison is to provide the necessary information to support the selection of a modelling approach, focusing on a set of verifiable criteria. For this reason, we review the rationale approach of modelling, proposing a modelling sample for a single living system and discussing the main advantages and drawbacks of each approach.
